Introducing Luno Academy in Malaysia

It’s been an exciting past one month, where we’ve seen bitcoin’s price climbing (and it still is), and crypto going mainstream (read PayPal’s news). It’s all getting really exciting, are you wondering how best to join the cryptocurrency wave? Have you ever wondered how trading cryptocurrencies could work for you?

We will be rolling out a new one-month structured programme: Luno Academy. Through this programme, we will equip you with the trading knowledge and tips as you work towards becoming a better (or professional) cryptocurrency trader. This will be a perfect launchpad for your crypto trading journey!


So, what is Luno Academy?

Luno Academy is our commitment as one of the pioneers and leading crypto exchange platforms in Malaysia. We make it safe and easy for you to sell, buy, store and learn cryptocurrency.

It is an educational program specifically designed for those who are keen to learn more about crypto trading. It’s a one-month programme with a series of five learning sessions conducted online by Luno and guest speakers. To make learning more relevant, there will be two competitions where you get to apply what you have learned, and at the same time stand a chance to be amongst the top traders of the programme to win your share of the RM 11,000 prize pool! What’s more – some of our top traders will be participating in the programme as mentors, so you can learn directly from them!
